Shouldn't be that far away actually. Canon now has cameras that will  
"focus" where your eye is looking. Shouldn't be too hard to retro-fit  
it to an OS. I bet with Mac OS X and the built-in iSight cameras and  
the Quicktime access to the output from them it'd be a SMOP.

I actually wouldn't want the window focus to follow my eyesight  
though - I regularly browse across at other windows (e.g. IRC)  
without wanting the focus to move away from the window I'm working/ 
typing in.
